9.11-beta-1 Released

Recommended Posts

I'm sure that @Jason Carrhas merely overlooked this and will be able to code something up that will import disc from the additional apps data as I can see this being an issue for people.

Just wondering if there’s a bit of a roadmap/poll for Android port additional features?

Very nice to see the port becoming a thing, as yet I cant make the move from HS Android on STV but I may give it a little test this week on my phone, my LB setup is minimal.

It will be the same price for everyone. $5 to start i believe but that may increase when its more fully featured.

But If I buy it when it's $5 do I still need to buy it again, when the price have increased??

I have nothing against to pay more, since I have been waiting for this forever, but still, it's good to know :)

Question. Will LB Android easily be able to import games downloaded from the App store.. Sorry if it's a dumbass question 🤣🙏

Yes, though not in this initial release. That's pretty important though so that will be coming soon.

I just wanted to give a little input on the LB for Android. I have been rooting for this for a year or 2 now as I love my LB/BB and am thrilled to see it happening!

From what I have learned so far, I think the export from a PC feature is genius!  I love that it copies of my artwork, as I have done much customization to it for speed rather than scraping again.

I am extremely curious how well or even if the new LB app is going to play well with SMB shares / NAS's, etc. If you have TB's of games as I do, it is essential to not have multiple copies every where, but be able to have to stored in one place and all the devices be able to access them from the single location. I am able to do that now using my current front-end on my android devices. Anyone have any info on this?

The issue with using a NAS is that you'd have to be local to the NAS, or have some kind of a public-facing web server hosting all the stuff. Plex does it well but it's very complicated. It's possible that we might support something like this eventually, but it's a fairly long ways off. The initial goal for the app is just to make everything work locally, and with the size and cost of SD cards these days, I don't see that as too much of a hindrance.

Hi. I have come across an issue with android export in launchbox. Please remove if this is in the wrong spot. When I export ps1 games, I have a game with 4 disc's, all have .cue and .bin files. It will only copy the cue from disc one, and that's all and no othe bins or cues for disc one to four. The same happens with single disc games with cue files, it will just export the cue and not the associated bin file. Thanks for the great work though. Been using launchbox since 2014 ish. Have a great day!

I have a list of known issues that I was waiting to post until Google finally approves the Android app and it goes live, but this is a known issue that I was planning on posting. Bin and cue files will be supported, but they're not supported yet.

Nope. If you get in early at $5, you'll have it forever for that price. :)

Sweet! In that case I will buy it on 2-3 different accounts! You know, just in case :P

Not as of yet. I have a lot of things to flesh out before we'd do any kind of a poll, and a lot of things are still in the planning stages.

I bet.........Thanks for the reply. I look forward to digging into some of the tricky android systems and helping out where I can.
